What you can expect
Glide through enchanting canals just like Venetians of yesteryear with a serene ride in a traditional gondola. As a master gondolier leads you down the Grand Canal and into smaller waterways, soak up the sights of the distinct Gothic buildings and arching bridges that make the city so magical.
Make your way to Campo San Luca, where a gondolier in classic Venetian garb ushers you to a nearby canal to step into a flat-bottomed gondola. Soon, you're floating gracefully out into the expansive Grand Canal, flanked by beautiful arched buildings built in the Venetian Gothic style. Observe the bustle of boat traffic that still makes use of the canal today, and pass beneath the Rialto Bridge for a spectacular perspective on its stone grandeur.
Your peaceful journey also leads you into some of the minor waterways around St. Mark's Square, in which more entrancing sights of Venice await. Peer down alleyways at charming residences and shops, glide past moored private boats, and navigate under small bridges spanning the narrow walkways. As your picturesque ride draws to an end, your gondolier brings you to a convenient drop-off point to continue exploring the city on your own.
